Summary

  • "Akosua Adoma Owusu is a Ghanaian-American filmmaker, producer and cinematographer whose award-winning films and installation work address the collision of identities, where the African immigrant located in the United States has a "triple consciousness." Owusu interprets Du Bois' notion of double consciousness and creates a third cinematic space or consciousness, representing diverse identities including feminism, queerness and African immigrants interacting in African, white American, and black American culture."--Container
